Is subway good food ??? i know its good for all these healthy things on likke loosing weight and everything but if i go there and say get a 12 inch turkey or chicken sub would that be good for one meal if im bulking?

there is never anything wrong with getting the occasional fast food meal.

ask for their nutritional breakdown at the store, and see how many calories etc are in the sub, then figure that into your daily needs.

it is fine for a meal during a bulk i guess, but not very cost effective.

Go to the subway website for the nutritional information. Pick a sub with lean meats (turkey), load on the fresh veggies and skip the mayo and you've got a pretty healthly meal.

Nothing wrong with eating "dirtier" once in awhile.

I agree with the way everyone is pointing here, Subway is fast food, not health food.

Healthy Subway sub whole wheat 6" bun, plain with vegetables. (Why would you pay for something that bland?) or 6' plain whole wheat bun with roast beef. (I think that's the healthiest meat cut they have. (Still pretty dry with no mayo, oil etc)

My Subway sub (usually on bulk or cheat) 12" cold cut with double meat, with cheese and extra cheese, bacon and extra bacon, little lettuce, little onion, tons of mayo, oil, lots of salt and pepper and nuked to hell. We call it a "neck bone sandwich", sure to give you a heart attack in an hour. Man that sounds good right now.

Just checked their web site and their tuna is their second highest in fat! Second only to the chicken bacon ranch. Almost double of the cold cut combo!
A lot of sodium in them all,
Roast beef and turkey are looking like the best choices.

When I go to subway I get a footlong wheat bun on turkey with mayo, lettuce, tomato, peppers. I usually grab one almost every weekend to maintain eating good while i'am out.

subway is delicious..
and very healthy..
lean meat like turkey/roastbeef.. with a wheat bun.. with the veggies+onions is very healthy..
the key is the condiments.. no mayo is crucial..
course IMO.. subway is overpriced.. u could easily make that and pack it!

the key is the condiments.. no mayo is crucial..

mayo is made up of mostly good fats. I wouldn't worry about the fat in mayo unless your going over you daily needs.

When I go I get a 12" double meat ball on white with 2x meyo...

Seriously.. the initial question was fine... but if meyo or a simple sub DESTROYS your entire diet and your life... then you got bigger issues then the sub...

Just use common sense... if you plan on eating a sub that day, just re-adjust your calorie to fit around the sub... (if your that obssessed (sp?)).

I just went to subway because i was out before got my 12" wheat bread sub with chicken no mayo or that stuff pretty good protein not much fat i think it was pretty good :)

I just threw down a footlong sub for lunch for the second day in a row. I eat Subway all the time, but I try to stick with the ones from the list that have under 6g of fat.

The only bad thing from a health point of view is the high sodium content, but I'm a bit of an ass in the sense that I don't really care how much sodium I eat.

12-30-2004, 11:35 AM
:withstupi.....about the sodium intake...and im on a bulk...so does sodium intake really matter?

12-30-2004, 12:03 PM
hehe ya im with him

12-30-2004, 12:31 PM
I don't see anything wrong with Subway. I mean, I totally understand that their food is processed and what not, but it's much better than many other fast food places. I always go for the roasted chicken on whole wheat, no cheese, no sauces, just veggies.

12-30-2004, 07:53 PM
I get the same only I get swiss cheese and some mustard mmmmm

Just bringing this up because i dont want to make a new thign What kind of nuts do you guys eat i need a quick snack during school..... from when i eat breakfast i have 5 hours untill lunch and i need something to eat.

01-03-2005, 03:33 PM
I usually munch on peanuts,almonds, walnuts.... generally most nuts are good

01-03-2005, 05:11 PM
I find quizno's quite good too, but subway is a pretty good choice for fast food.

01-03-2005, 05:41 PM

Subway is awesome and now that they have toasted sandwiches there is no reason to go to Quiznos since subway is cheaper. I dont possibly see how subway can be bad for you as long as you stay with the lean cuts of meat. I always get the roasted chicken sub. Its got 22g of protein and less than 6 grams of fat per 6 inches. In addition you can load on the veggies, which unfortunately i dont eat enough of. The only bad part about subway might be the sodium intake, but as long as you stay away from the sauces and dont add salt it shouldnt be that bad. Probably the most healthy place to get fast food. Also if you wanna stay low on carbs you can make any sandwich into a salad or low carb wrap.

01-03-2005, 07:15 PM
I always get mine on WW Bread too :D

01-03-2005, 08:05 PM
Just make sure you eat subway in moderation. Most of the meat they have there is preserved, "cured" stuff, so it has a lot of nitrates in it. These are not good for your bodily proteins :)

I did the subway diet before that ba$tard jarrod, and lost 50 pounds. I didn't even know it was a diet, I just knew that was my best choice for eating out, so I spent 30-40 bucks a week there. It only took like 8-10 weeks to lose the 50. I've gained it all back since I got a desk job though.

Why does everyone fear sodium... unless your dieting for a contest and need to be ultra shread due to low water retention, you don't need to worry about sodium...

Unless of course your a dumbass ingesting a TON of the stuff... then you have bigger issues then the sodium anyways...


01-08-2005, 11:54 PM
Optimally there are better options, but if your out or traveling and need a meal, Subway is a much better choice then Jack in the Crack or McD's.

01-09-2005, 12:31 AM
Beware the processed lunch meats...

If you go subway, opt for the unprocessed meats such as chicken breast.

01-09-2005, 08:47 AM
just go to panera

techincally if the meats like chicken breast are not processed your get food poisonning. You can't get unprocessed meats for sandwich shops etc.

the word processed is so miss used.

Unless you have blood pressure issues. *I'm also responding to the poster who didnt' worry about sodium on a bulk*.

I could be completely wrong, but I would assume that bulking would be the time when one would be the most concerned about sodium intake.

Rapid weight gain + scaled back cardio + sodium is a great formula for high blood pressure.

:french: Hehe ok than

01-09-2005, 10:15 PM
Just so you know, Subway's wheat bread isn't "whole wheat." The main ingredient is till "unbleached enriched wheat," not "whole wheat."

01-09-2005, 11:24 PM
i need all the calories i can get, screw the lettuce and coldcuts crap.
12 inch meatball sub with mayo every time baby. we're talking triple digit calorie count

01-10-2005, 05:27 PM
triple digit could be 100 calories hehe :)

01-10-2005, 05:29 PM
oh yeah. well a quadruple digit number!

01-10-2005, 05:31 PM
lol much better

01-10-2005, 07:05 PM
